BABU OWINO warns President RUTO against disbanding HELB – You will see fire!

As the President of the Republic of Kenya, it is your duty to ensure that the welfare of the citizens of Kenya is your top priority. However, it has come to my attention that you are considering disbanding the Higher Education Loans Board (HELB).

”I, Babu Owino, as a Member of Parliament and an advocate for the education sector, strongly urge you to reconsider this decision. Disbanding HELB would be a grave mistake and would have far-reaching consequences for the students of Kenya.

HELB plays a crucial role in providing financial assistance to students pursuing higher education in our country. Without this assistance, many students would not be able to afford the high costs of tuition and other fees associated with higher education.

Furthermore, disbanding HELB would result in the loss of thousands of jobs, as it employs a large number of staff who work tirelessly to provide this vital service to our youth. This would only add to the already high levels of unemployment in our country, further straining an already strained economy.

In addition, disbanding HELB would send a negative message to the youth of Kenya, who are our future leaders. It would show that their education and future prospects are not a priority for our government. This would be a disincentive for many students to pursue higher education, leading to a brain drain and a less educated workforce.

I implore you, President Ruto, to reconsider your decision to disband HELB. The consequences of such a move would be disastrous for the students, the economy, and the future of our country. If you go ahead with this plan, you will see fire. The youth of Kenya will not stand idly by while their education and future prospects are sacrificed for short-term political gain. It is our duty to ensure that every Kenyan has the opportunity to pursue higher education and reach their full potential. Let us not turn our back on the youth of Kenya.”
